Kramon & Graham has a highly-regarded health care practice. We represent health care providers and hospitals and serve as hearing officers at proceedings mandated by hospital by-laws. In our health care practice, we have sat at every side of the table, and we bring that experience to each health care client we represent.
The intersection of medicine and law adds to the complexity of the delivery of health care services. Health care professionals and institutions face incredible risks and challenges – malpractice claims, disciplinary actions, HIPAA complaints, credentialing challenges, reimbursement disputes, insurance-coverage questions, and charges of Medicare/Medicaid fraud, to name only a few. These challenges can threaten the livelihoods of health care providers. We have extensive experience representing clients in these areas.
Our experience is broad, and includes:
- Appearing on behalf of health care providers before licensing boards;
- Advising health care providers, hospitals, and other institutions on credentialing issues;
- Serving as hearing officers in credentialing proceedings;
- Defending claims of Medicare and Medicaid fraud, as well as providing advice and litigation services in reimbursement disputes;
- Reviewing and developing contracts for health care professionals, practices, and institutions;
- Serving as personal counsel to health care professionals in contract claims, including insurance-coverage issues, non-compete claims, and partnership disputes;
- Litigating medical-malpractice claims;
- Providing risk-management advice, including advice about HIPAA and the maintenance of medical records; and
- Representing health care providers in personal disability claims.
Our attorneys have received national recognition in the representation of practitioners in licensing proceedings and malpractice claims. They are recognized as leaders in their fields by Chambers USA, Best Lawyers, Benchmark Litigation, and Super Lawyers.
